They will now play four international friendlies, three of which will come against South American sides, namely Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. They will also wind up this leg of friendlies against Egypt on June 13.

South Korea have been drawn against Portugal, Ghana and Uruguay in Group H for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They will face Uruguay in their first game of the competition.

Brazil were thoroughly dominant in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers. They remained unbeaten in the qualification campaign, picking up 14 wins in 17 matches and finishing at the top of the table.

The Selecao have been in scintillating form of late, beating each of Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia by a 4-0 scoreline. Brazil will be playing a friendly for the first time since November 2019.

South Korea vs Brazil Prediction

Brazil have plenty of match-winners in their team to be able to get a win here. But South Korea won't be pushovers and they've been in pretty good form as well. This should be a tightly contested affair with the Selecao coming away with a narrow win.

Prediction: South Korea 0-2 Brazil
